[Editor's Note: Are you planning to watch the Presidential Debates in October? The first one starts next week, on Wednesday, October 3. Gloria Feldt of Heartfeldt calls it "required watching for all voters". If you had a chance to ask questions to President Obama or Mitt Romney, what would you want to know? Here's what Gloria suggests. --Grace]
Most of the time when I’m cheering and booing from the debate sidelines, I’m annoyed with the moderators’ softball questions that have too little follow up to get the candidates beyond their talking points.
Voters deserve a reasoned, polished debate, but also one that forces Obama and Romney to elucidate their most passionate convictions. That requires the moderator to frame questions specifically, not in general terms. And then to ask the second question, or the third follow up if necessary to get to the nut of each candidate’s answer.
